Iasonas F. Triantis is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, City, University of London, United Kingdom. Dr Triantis specialises in analogue chip design for bio-interfacing and has taken research in the areas of microelectronics mainly for electrical bio-interfacing, and more specifically for implantable neuroprosthetics and impedimetric instrumentation.


Introduction: Infrared Nerve Stimulation (INS) is becoming popular because of its potential to provide targeted stimulation [1]. Recently it was claimed that myelin sheath can guide light (200nm – 1300nm) [2], however... [ view full abstract ]
